Five things to know ahead of Saturday's game against Crewe

27 April 2018

Jordan Bowery (pictured) and Chris Porter are the two banging in the goals for the Alex. The pair both have 12 goals so far and have been a vital part of David Artell’s squad. Bowery, formerly of Leyton Orient, made the switch north in May 2017. Porter signed a two-year deal with Crewe after leaving Colchester last summer.

Three points for the Reds could possibly send them into 11th place, depending on other results of course. From the last four games Harry Kewell and co have picked up five points from a possible 12 and will be looking for their first home win since beating Lincoln 3-1 in February. 

Our last meeting with Alex ended in defeat at Gresty Road for the Reds. Goals from Chris Dagnall and Callum Ainley gave the hosts three points back in December. The last time the Reds came out victorious against Crewe was in December 2016. James Collins found the back of the net twice in a 2-0 victory at Gresty Road.

Crewe come to the Checkatrade Stadium off the back of a 1-0 victory at home to Morecambe. Currently sitting 8th in the form table, the Alex have taken seven points from their last four games to end any lingering relegation fears. Manager David Artell insists his side know how tough the trip to Crawley will be. He said: “It has been the same preparation because we want to win the game and Crawley are a good side.”

Following our 2-2 draw against Exeter last Saturday, Reds will be looking to finish the season with two wins. Defender Josh Yorwerth said: “We believe that we can beat anyone in this league, so we’ll working as hard as possible in these last two weeks to get two positive results.”
